Dutch builder, Van der Valk Shipyard, has announced the launch of the new Continental Four superyacht SANTA MARIA T. At 36,80m, she represents the largest trawler vessel ever built by Van der Valk, and the first of a new generation of designs created in collaboration with Guido de Groot. Moreover, SANTA MARIA T is the first yacht in the world fitted with an all-new two-axis fin antiroll damping system that provides stabilization both underway and at zero speed without compromising performance in either circumstance.
Boasting a classic, timeless yet clearly distinctive style, SANTA MARIA T was built to endure the toughest weather conditions. She is a full displacement motoryacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, with a large fuel capacity that ensures a transatlantic range.
Both the exterior as well as interior of the vessel were fully customised to its owner’s wishes. The lower deck hosts the owner’s quarters as well as guest accommodation. The owner’s stateroom is positioned amidships and is fitted with a bed upholstered entirely in leather, as well as a huge walk-in wardrobe, office, lounge and en suite bathroom.
Guest accommodation includes a double VIP suite in the bow, a twin guest cabin to port, and a twin queen-sized bunk bed cabin to starboard. All of the guest cabins have their own private bathroom. The crew premises aft comprise three cabins with direct access to the engine room and lazarette, a spacious galley, a crew mess and two bathrooms.
In addition, luxury yacht SANTA MARIA T also boasts a huge flybridge. At almost 20 metres in length, it is fitted with a full aluminium hardtop, two spacious dining/lounge areas, a kitchen/wet bar with refrigerators, ice maker and a barbeque, an area dedicated to sun beds, as well as a crane with a capacity of 1200 kg for launching the custom 6,40-metre carbon fibre Beachlander tender.
